RIP Luke Perry

There are only two certainties in life: death and taxes.

We pay taxes regularly, whether it is sales tax at the register or when we go to our accountant every spring. But death is unpredictable. Some die in their golden years, having lived a long life. Others are unfortunately taken during their prime.

Luke Perry died today from a stroke. He was 52.

For a certain generation, Perry was their TV boyfriend. Playing the James Dean-esque Dylan McKay on the ground breaking high school drama Beverly Hills, 90210. Created by Darren Star and produced by Aaron Spelling, the show set the standard for every high school based, teen drama that has been on television for the last thirty years. Coming full circle, Perry joined the cast of Riverdale in 2016, playing the father of Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa).

Perry is survived by his children, his fiance, his family and those who loved him as both a human being and an actor.

RIP, sir. May your memory be a blessing.
